Titre : DEVELOP POSTHARVEST TREATMENTS TO CONTROL OLIVE FRUIT FLY IN OLIVES

Identification : 5302-43000-030-05T

Pays : Etats Unis

Durée : Apr 6, 2000 à Apr 1, 2005

Domaine : Quality Maintenance in Storing and Marketing Food Products

Objectif  : The objective of this cooperative research project is to develop quarantine treatments and control strategies to control olive fruit fly in olives.

Descriptif
Quarantine treatments and strategies will be developed to control olive fruit fly in olives to reduce economic losses of the fruit and to allow regional shipments of harvested fruit. New control strategies including attract and kill traps, bait stations, and plastic film bin liners will be investigated as methods to reduce adult and larval populations. Biological control agents will be investigated including a newly discovered parasite and a cold tolerant parasite as methods to reduce populations in regions with high infestations. The physical factors that limit insect growth including temperature and humidity will be studied in the laboratory to determine the effect of weather on the distribution of olive fruit fly in California and potential growth of populations in regions with a high production of canning olives. Quarantine treatments previously developed including low temperature storage regimes and brine solutions will be supported with further research to control larval populations in the fruit. Previous observations and laboratory investigations to study insect-host interactions will be continued to determine factors that affect fruit susceptibility to attack
